GIS professionals working inside utilities organizations help produce network maps and business information enhanced with weather intelligence, topography, rights-of-way, satellite imagery, and field data. They manage flow of data between GIS and other enterprise systems, serving as the main knowledge hub for visualisation and analysis of asset information.
